All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Opera, allowing for file
disclosure, privilege escalation and Cross-Site scripting.
Opera is a fast web browser that is available free of charge.
Mozilla discovered that Opera does not handle input to file form fields
properly, allowing scripts to manipulate the file path (CVE-2008-1080).
Max Leonov found out that image comments might be treated as scripts,
and run within the wrong security context (CVE-2008-1081). Arnaud
reported that a wrong representation of DOM attribute values of
imported XML documents allows them to bypass sanitization filters
A remote attacker could entice a user to upload a file with a known
path by entering text into a specially crafted form, to execute scripts
outside intended security boundaries and conduct Cross-Site Scripting
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Opera users should upgrade to the latest version:
